As Fram got a foothold in the game a free kick from Johnson was met by Smith on the edge of the area to divert the ball past keeper Pishorn to open the scoring on 25 minutes.

As the visitors became frustrated the home side increased their lead on 37 minutes when Smith stroked home from inside the 18 yard box to register his 100th senior goal for the club.

Sini Rodrigues missed the opportunity to increase the lead before half-time however he made up for it on 50 minutes when he clipped the ball over the keeper from the edge of the area to secure all three points.
